At the Sand Dunes there is day riding and night riding (yep, surprise surprise). I remember when I was younger I didn’t really enjoy riding at night very much. In fact, I really don’t enjoy it all that much now. It is harder to see, especially when you don’t have the best lights at night in the middle of mountains of sand. Those pesky Witches Eyes can sneak right up on you! The dunes are pretty difficult to navigate in the day so they can be even more difficult to do it with little or even no light. I remember one time we went out on a night ride. My brother, who was following us in our line, ran into trouble when his quad died, ran out of gas, or maybe he got stuck. I cant really remember. Anyways, it was at night and the only reason we found him is because he turned his headlights on as we drove by trying to look for him. I loved riding in our sand rail at night. Lets just say it has some pretty powerful lights. My dad is…..well, lest say kind of hard of seeing; so bright lights help out a ton. We have a light bar on the top of our rail with HID lights. HID stands for High-Intensity Discharge. They make a lot of light! We have 4 big ones across the top of our sand rail and you can always seem to spot out ours because of the light it produces. Whether we are at the drags, Comp Hill or wherever, it seems that our lights are unique and a little bit brighter then everyone else (of course I might be a little bit biased).
Okay okay I know you are just dying to know what this has to do with the Gospel. Well when you are riding your way through life do you want to ride in the darkness or the light? We are going to inevitably have dark times on our sojourn here on earth. We want to see those witches eyes before we hit them. Now we shouldn’t settle for just any lights. We need the best headlights around, and there is one headlight that is the ultimate light. John 8:12 says “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” Jesus Christ is the light that will light up our path. He will lead us to do good. Jesus Christ is the ultimate HID light. His light is unique and the brightest. I know that if we follow him and His light we will never be lead astray. We will be able to make it through those dark times on our journey through the dunes of life! Watch this video, it is about different people that let the Light of Christ lead and help them out of a dark time in their lives.
